that the obama camp can win the next 24 hours. also tomorrow the labor department releases its monthly jobs report potentially, giving team obama a chance to change the narrative. let me bring in political editor -- senior political edit editor, mark murray. patrick gaspar was here a moment ago. he had the same strategy you pointed out earlier this morning. they're looking at the long picture or big picture here, and not focusing too much on the one debate. >> that's right. they tried to turn the message. they had an aggressive conference call today. you saw a fiery president obama campaigning in denver trying to point out what they said were misstatements that mitt romney made at the debate last night. so that's what they are actually trying to do. i will say as we wrote in first read, there is that kind of 24-hour period on how the campaigns can try to shake things. just seeing the body language, seeing a lot of the commentary, the obama campaign is still struggling. diana on andrea mitchell's program said president obama looked tired. you don't want to hear that from a democratic congres
in 2009, which brings us to the next surprise. the obama campaign cash that was raised last month. september proved to be a lucrative month for the president's re-election campaign. democrats raised $181 million. that's a record. joining me live from washington, peter hamby. that's a whole lot of cash raised. very amazing. say many, and all in one month. how was it done? big donors, small donors, what? >> the campaign says 98% of this money came from people giving $250 or less. sptd was a very big month for democrats. polls show that the convention really brought home the democratic base and these numbers just reaffirm it. this is the biggest monthly total of this campaign. this is the money that the obama campaign and the democratic national committee have collected together. it means they're only about $50 million short of raising $1 billion for this whole campaign. so they're almost certainly going to outpace that in the next month. this is a big symbolic lift for the obama campaign after that really bad debate. they had the jobs numbers on friday and this today. it helps the c

. caller: good morning. what can president obama or governor romney due to work with the next congress? do think this will lead to a greater assertion of executive authority in the next term? guest: thank you, john. i did not know i would be facing the toughest questioners. congressional approval is at an all-time low. it is up there with paris hilton and the communist party of russia. i think we need to step back and understand many people in this country see the political system as broken. others -- elizabeth warren -- have spoken house some money have seen the system rigged against them. there is a few that those who dislike government for the past 40 years have a stake in diminishing the reputation of government, of congress. i would argue that we have seen a movement in these last 40 years to debase role of government. callback and read the book on lyndon johnson. the use or abuse of the filibuster has been used or abuse in the last 10 days or three years more than once in the 1960's 197's combined by the republicans. the president has an opportunity to come back if the republicans de
-- supporting women -- are much more popular than mitt romney's policies. i think that the obama team is going to double down on that over the next few weeks. >> brett, your reaction to that? >> well, you know, on wednesday night, those policies didn't look so good. a debate's about a competition of ideas, especially a political debate. so the president's got to be able to defend those policies if they truly are superior, and on wednesday night he didn't do a very good job of doing that. >> columnist david brooks and peggy noonan praised romney's performance after its missteps in recent weeks. brooks writing this. romney finally emerged from the fog and at long last began the process of offering a more authentic version of himself. noonan wrote this, america got its first sustained look at the good and competent mr. romney. how much do you think does the public support of leading conservaves like the two of them help romney, not just with republicans but with undecided voters? >> i think it helped some, but the person who helped governor romney most was governor romney. on wednesday night, he
. >>> the fact checkers pushed back on that claim and the obama campaign changed the ad to the next version saying, "his firm had outsourced." >> so fact checking is a protection against this deception? >> fact checking is a way of not eliminating the deceptive inferences, but increasing the likelihood that you have more of these statements accurate. >> you know, there are some journalists who disagree with you. the media critic jack shafer said in a column that quote, "of course politicians and their campaigns lie. of course they continue to lie even when called out. if you think otherwise, then they might have been speaking to you. you're looking for truth in all the wrong places." is that realistic or cynical or both? >> if you say that candidates are willing to lie in order to be elected, are you saying that when they govern as president, we have just licensed them to lie to us? because we have said as a public that we think that lying is acceptable and we're willing to be duped. i worry when campaigns assume that deception is just part of normal operating procedure. i wonder whether th
's natural gas, oil or coal. given that circumstance, why is ohio swinging towards president obama in the forth coming election? >> well, it's right now, obama is up, if you take a rolling average by about 5. i think that's going to come down in the next couple of days as a consequence of the uplift from romney's debate performance. but at the end of the day, ohio is a battle ground state and it's up for grabs. and that's because we have a president that has shepherded anemic economic growth and job creation. we have to make a choice whether or not we want to continue down that path or whether we want to go down the path of robust energy and economic expansion and job creation. stuart: what is it? is it epa rules that are just closing down coal mines so they can't use, you can't use coals in a power plant? epa rules are doing this? >> the epa is an aggressive deterrent for the use of coal and the production of jobs. but look, at the end of the day, this is an administration that has chosen winners and losers and as governor romney said the other night, he is in fact chose losers. a
